The Inspiration for My Lightweight Crochet Top

Hi everyone, it’s Meghan here from Meghan Makes Do and I am thrilled to be sharing my Andie Top with you today. In case you didn’t know, I’m not only a crocheter, but a sewer too. I love working with all kinds of fabrics and love how easy it is to manipulate the fabric to create amazing drape in clothing. Now that I’m venturing into the world of crochet garment design, I’ve made it my mission to create crochet “fabric” that mimics the look and feel of real fabric as much as possible.

Free crochet pattern for a lightweight crochet top with cap sleeves and gathers to create a flattering fit on any figure.

While designing The Andie Top, I wanted to create a garment that would be flowy and flattering on all figures. Using some simple crochet stitches I was able to create the somewhat gathered look in the front which gives it a little bit of an oversized feel. The yoke is constructed first and uses a fun cross double crochet stitch to make it airy and perfect for warm summer days.

A Lightweight Yarn Perfect For Summer Crochet Garments

I used Lion Brand’s Cotton Jeans for The Andie Top and it was perfect! It’s a lightweight, super soft cotton which highlights the textures of the stitches perfectly. The neutral colors available are just what I was looking for to create a classic garment that can be worn for years. Feel free to substitute with your favorite weight 3 cotton yarn or even acrylic for a warmer garment. (You can see all the subtle, wearable shades of Cotton Jeans yarn here.)

This free crochet pattern for a lightweight crochet top uses Lion Brand Collection Cotton Jeans yarn to keep you cool all summer long.

How To Crochet a Flowy, Lightweight Crochet Top?

To make your Andie Top you’ll start with the front and back yokes. You will be working from the center out to create the left side of your yokes first. Then reattaching the yarn to the beginning chains to create the right side. Each size is written separately so scroll down until you find the size you need.

The bottom of the top is made by crocheting directly into the bottom of the yokes. You’ll be adding little loops to the front in order to create the gathers so make sure to pay attention to your stitch counts in those first beginning rows. Then you’ll just have to seam up the sides and shoulders to complete your top.

The Andie Top is an intermediate level crochet pattern, but would be great for an experienced beginner looking to learn some new skills in the way of garment construction. You will need to know the basic crochet stitches like single and double crochet as well as how to increase and decrease.

      Hey,

      Yes, I see what you mean. Let me see if the designer can clarify a bit. I’ll try to add an additional note to the pattern to clarify once I hear from her.

      Hello! For the cross double crochet you will skip a stitch, then dc in the next stitch. Go back to the skipped stitch and work a dc around the dc you just made and into the skipped stitch. Hope that helps!

    Could you use a cotton/poly blend that’s also a 3?

      I don’t see why not. I’d just check your gauge with a small swatch to see if you need to adjust your hook size at all.

      Happy crocheting!
